10 Best Songs About Bicycles

read
A mixtape honoring our favorite form of transport.

Cycling and music are two things we couldn't live without. The others being eating and sleeping. So we're extra hyped that our friends at Flavorwire put together this mixtape of songs about biking, featuring two-wheeled anthems from Pink Floyd, TV On The Radio, Kraftwerk, and more. (But hey, where's "My White Bicycle" by Tomorrow? Classic bike-adelic rock!) Photo via The......read more

The Balance

watch
Hypnotic CGI video envisions audio waves in space.

What if we could see sound? What would it look like? If this mesmerizing CGI video from motion design maestro Rimantas Lukavicius is any indication, then it looks like an outer space acid trip. A fascinating and hallucinatory short film from the talented Lithuanian animator. ...read more

Blackbird Blackbird "Blind"

watch
Blissed-out song gets purty visual treatment from Alan Jensen.

Is "chillwave" actually a thing? We hope not. But on the other hand, we're not mad at the hazy, daydreamy vibes that the awfully-named genre is marked by. If there is such a thing, then "Blind" by San Francisco's Blackbird Blackbird (formerly known as Bye Bye Blackbird), is in it. This lovely visual treatment, from Albuquerque filmmaker Alan Jensen, (who has also......read more

Into the Cosmos

One for the vinyl heads.

A collaboration between director/animator Chopsy and Bristol beat maestro Architeq (Tirk Recordings), "Into the Cosmos" tells the story of old LPs that are mysteriously summoned to a warehouse from their forgotten homes in attics, shelves and garbage bins.

A Classic Education, "Gone To Sea"

watch
Vintage visuals remixed by Jamie Harley.

Jamie Harley's found footage videos for up-and-coming bands are usually hazy, nostalgic affairs, and this one for “Gone to Sea," the first song off A Classic Education's Hey There Stranger EP, stays the course. The video combines the Italian band's heartmelting chamber pop with vintage visuals of kids frolicking in the South Pacific. The idyllic imagery, taken......read more

Band of greenies go on a desert pilgrimage.

The video for "40 Day Dream" is the third instalment in SALVO!, the 12-part video opera that Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are creating to go along with their hit album Up From Below. And it's a beauty.

Gold Panda, "Marriage"

watch
Feel good visual vibes by Ronni Shendar.

British beat wiz Gold Panda checks in with a new video for "Marriage" featuring not much more than some friendly looking folks holding lanterns.

Stream GP's just-released Marriage EP on Soundcloud....read more
